Over the past two weeks, the Brewers concluded a ten day road trip through the National League East. They then undertook seven day homestand against the same division. It produced mixed results, but ultimately a winning record and the best 40-game start to a season in team history. With legendary comebacks, dominant pitching performances, and timely hitting from rising stars, the past two weeks showed what this team is capable of. Now to take a look at the games themselves and what we learned from them. THE GAMES Game 30: 10-5 Loss in Cincinnati (19-11) A five run fifth inning…

With three games against the Reds already cementing a great week, it was time to pay a visit to the defending champions in Atlanta. Here’s how they did. THE GAMES Game 24: 6-3 Win vs Cincinnati (16-8) It was an unbelievable homestand for Willy Adames and Rowdy Tellez. The powerful duo hit home runs at an alarming rate, and this game against Cincinnati just added to their legend. Adames…

It was the final week of April and the Milwaukee Brewers had a chance to end the first month of the 2022 season on an extremely high note. They did just that.

THE GAMES GAME 11: 6-1 Win vs Pittsburgh (6-5) Christian Yelich, at least for one night, looked like the Christian Yelich of 2018 and 2019, going 2-4 with a Grand Slam in the fourth inning to key a win. The team only mustered six hits,…

Every year, there’s a prospect who gets promoted and out of nowhere becomes an impact player for their team. The Milwaukee Brewers have seen that happen numerous times over the past decade. Pitchers like Mitch Stetter came in and threw important innings with little fanfare. For hitters, there’s always the Mike Riveras or Nate Orfs. Sometimes it’s a player coming over from an outside league in a different country, like Nori Aoki. Impact players can arrive with little to no hype and still be a key part of a championship team. The Brewers currently have some guys with that potential…
